You are going to have to demonstrate how you managed that. Since ALL yvalues are the same, your numerator should be zero.

never mind if cant be 2 because to find the slope you have to do the rise and run thing and in this problem there isn't a rise

**The gradient of a horizontal straight line will be zero. Let me explain.

No, there IS a rise, and it is zero! That is quite a bit different from "there is no rise".

lets choose two points. (0,2) (1,2) and use the gradient formula to figure out the gradient. y=(22)/(10) y=0/1 y=0

No slope exists for horizontal lines. This line would be called y=2

Let's get it straight, folks: Horizontal Line: Zero Slope (Calculated Numerator is Zero) Vertical Line: No Slope (Calculated Denominator is Zero)

Don't by mistake write y=2x, because that would mean that the slope is 2. Instead the line is just simply y=2. And to correct @tkhunny, a horizontal line has no slope, and a vertical line has an undefined slope.

Seriously? Please read a better author. Horizontal Line: The slope is zero. m = 0. It is, therefore "Zero Slope". Vertical Line: The slope is not defined. m failes to exist. It is, therefore "No Slope".

The phrase "has an undefined slope" is not welldefined. If the slope is "undefined", nothing "has" it. It doesn't exist. The more precise language, for a vertical line, would be. "The slope is indefined." and "The line has no slope."
